The NT’s university, Charles Darwin University (CDU), is ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world by Times Higher Education. The university delivers more than 75 nationally recognised and accredited programs to students on-campus and online. Approximately 75% of the university’s higher education students study online and in 2014, CDU’s international education programmes were recognised with an Austrade National Export Award for excellence and innovation.

CDU was ranked in the top four universities in Australia and New Zealand by Reuters for research quality in Environmental Science. Home to the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL), CDU’s environmental research programmes specialise in a multidisciplinary approach to exploring the relationship between people and country and how this impacts the management of natural resources. With 50 scientists, 75 PhD students and 75 honorary adjunct research fellows in partner institutions, industry and Government, there is a wealth of on-ground research expertise to tap into for conferences that come to the NT.
